Assistant Professor Dario Grana has been recognized by the European Association of Geoscientists and Engineers (EAGE). 

Dario, a UW School of Energy Resources assistant professor in the Department of Geology and Geophysics, is a 2017 recipient of EAGE’s Arie van Weelden Award. It is presented to an EAGE member “who has made a highly significant contribution to one or more of the disciplines in the association.” Congratulations Dario!

Grana has written or co-written 15 peer-reviewed publications, a book chapter and a book, “Seismic Reflections of Rock Properties.” His research topics include reservoir characterization; geophysical inverse problems; seismic history matching; and rock physics.

He has won funding as a principal investigator (PI) or co-PI on five research projects, with two other grant applications in review.

His teaching experience includes 10 courses, and he supervises six Ph.D. students and three postdoctoral researchers.

Grana, who came to UW after earning his Ph.D. at Stanford, has received numerous honors. In 2016, he was recognized by the Society of Exploration Geophysicists (SEG) for his contributions to the field of rock physics with SEG’s J. Clarence Karcher Award. In 2014, he won the Petroleum Engineering Junior Faculty Research Award from the Society for Petroleum Engineering, as well as the Eni Award from the president of Italy for developing an innovative method to obtain information about oil and gas reservoirs using seismic techniques.
